Hi all, sometimes I like to post something a little different and talk about things on my blog that aren’t always book related. Those occasions are rare but this is one of them!
So the reason behind this post is that a little while ago I got given a bunch of Liz Earle products and I decided to use them this week. They’re all cleansing products and so I wondered what difference it would make to my skin to use these more pricey products than it would to use the cheaper products I usually use.
Usually, I use Superdrug’s own brand products, I have their Simply Pure cleanser and Toner which retails at £2.99 a bottle and is often on buy one get one free or buy one get one half price. I use cotton make up pads from Primark to apply it and remove it.
I swapped these out for a Liz Earle Cleanser with polishing cloth which retails at £14.50 for a 100ml bottle and £4.50 for the polishing cloths x2. I combined this with the Liz Earle Tonic £15.00 for a 200ml bottle although mine is a 50ml sample size.
And the results were, as you may possibly be able to see from the photos: no difference. My skin didn’t feel better overall. It was neither drier, nor more greasy and it doesn’t look better either, I’m still having outbreaks of spots on my forehead etc. My verdict, just because a product is more expensive doesn’t mean it’s going to work any more wonders than the cheaper brands! What do you think? Does my skin look any better afterwards?
